Whisky Reviews for Bowmore 1971

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.80 points

  1. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Reminds me a bit of the 71 sestante bottlings with a bit less depth and complexity, huge on sherry with the typical bowmore smoke, dark fruits but not much tropical fruitiness

  2. Equinox80 scored this whisky 98 points Expert Junior

    Colour: mahogany.
    Nose: amazingly complex, various sweet fruits, figs, cherry, then raisins and prunes, some tobacco, leather polish, coffee.
    Mouth: dried fruits (figs, prunes and possibly apricots), red orange, chocolate, herbal liqueur and raspberry syrup. Powerful sherry.
    Finish: long and lasting. Chocolate, raspberry and dried sweet fruits last forever...
